something you dont see everyday!!
here is my marlin 1895 gbl in 45-70 sporting an acog!!

just finished putting on the xs rail with ghost ring sights. the acog is just for giggles its getting a nikon african monarch with qd rings giving me fast access to the irons.

installed the small aperture. front sight is white bar insert

installed a wild west aluminum mag follower and best of all a "Bear Proof" ejector!!

Hell Jon,Put a couple lights,some black furniture,and a bayonet on it and it'll be so tacticool all the ninja's will want to buy it from ya!

Those ghost sights are really nice,and Wild West makes some great stuff from what I've heard.

a rail on a levergun is a little odd but its the only way to get a usable qd scope mounted. cant use the acog as there isnt enough eye relief with one not to have it pounded into your eye socket from a 400grain bullet launching out at 1900fps

the sights are integrated into the rail which makes it really handy

Have you guys seen the Mossberg tactical lever gun?

That thing is hideous. I mean i have a valid reason for my additions and mods. Thats just stupid

Jon, what the hell were you thinking? Putting a acog on a lever gun? That's just stupid. Everyone knows a red dot sight works much better. :D :p

It may be but that thing was the most popular rifle in the Mossberg booth at SHOT. I think it is a bit on the WTH were you thinking side of things. If you look at it though the lever gun was the first Hi Cap assult rifle ever made.

I chalk that up to the same thing as honey boo boo. Every one likes a freakshow but no one is going to bring one home.

Tell me why this is unusual? I'm trying to learn.

Because he put a Picatinny rail and an ACOG on to a lever action. These are normally reserved for AR/ AK style Tactical rifles.
